Same dimensions, 9015, with sapphire at one-fifth the price of one of the top 5 dive watch icons = controversy.
The China-based seller states that it should be ready by end of May but adds there may be delays. Good thing he added that. He should know as well as anyone that there has never been a watch produced on time in China. The second picture of the watch with a broken crown in the background isn't too inspiring - they might want to change that one.
If what happened to Rolex is any indicator, they wont be able to keep up with demand - for better or worse.

This thing where people are saying it's got a sapphire crystal oh my god it's got to be better than the seiko at a fraction of the price is quite frankly retarded
I own a seiko mm300 and I can see the appeal in this homage but I would have to question what kind of factory and working conditions are to make what looks like a lot of watch for that money ...slave labour?? This is even before ,shipping ,profit and materials
each to their own what I say is going to make no relevance if you buy or not
tbh wus has gone down hill for a long time in my opinion and this doesn't help one of the reasons I hardly post anymore
To speak to your arguments about the conditions I which the watch was manufactured, I can't speak to that or any other product produced in another country (specifically China). I think (opinion) that this just shows the real cost of a solid watch (SS case/bracelet, automatic mov., sapphire crystal, and ceramic bezel) and that the industry as a whole has been inflating their costs. I get that brands are expensive to maintain: R&D, advertising, retail spaces, etc..., but I think with some of these smaller/micro makers we are seeing a shift in Watch producing and overall costs.
That all being said I am super pumped to get an homage (ripoff) with some upgraded aspects at a fraction of the price of the original. I know that I probably will never to hold in my hand an actual SBDX001 without buying it first, so this will scratch that itch and maybe 2-3 years down the road my finances clear up enough to get the real thing.

Something about both of these feels like......
i think its not a broken crown. its just the crown without stem...
see difference from Merkur and Sharkey?
